History Historical Cars with Jot Horne Intakes

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Rocket's Hot Rod Garage, Oct 10, 2019.

  1. Seeing a picture of a rare Horne intake found at Hershey got me thinking.... What historical Hot Rods had Jot's rare one year only intakes? The most famous being Norm's Kookie T. I'd love to see some others.....

    Not a car but something interests about Horne, like Jack McAFEE and his Caddy supercharger and intake, they identified a market niche and the rest they say is history. Only 100 Horne intakes were produced before he sold out to Cragar so they are pretty rare and not something you're likely to see as common fodder these days?

  5. I'm pretty familiar with the History and "The Horne Post" but really can't think of any cars other than the Kookie T that ran an intake? I'm sure there had to be some others? Maybe not being as rare as they are now and where even back then.

    The intake collection owned by Titus. What might these have been on when they where new??? If only parts could talk.

    Not a famous car by any stretch of the imagination but my Horne equipped caddy powered ford runs as smooth as a gravy sandwich and has unbelievable throttle response.....

  13. I've always loved your '40. Seems there isn't really any historically significant Horn equipped Hot Rods other than the Kookie T. Maybe we should start a thread about just Horn equipped cars period.

    1a.jpg 1b.jpg 1c.jpg 1d.jpg 1e.jpg here is what looks to me like a Horne equipped sidewinder Olds powered crosley that @loudbang posted. If you look real close at the engine closeup you can see the H in horne.





    1956: Bert Kessler and Dean Gammill of Mattoon, Ill, used a diminutive Crosley sedan body to house their gear-driven sidewinder. Most sidewinders favored chains to transfer power to the axle, so gear drive was somewhat novel. This was configured by removing the tail-shaft of a Borg-Warner transmission and in its place welding a gear onto the shaft. The shifting was handled by a hydraulic shifting mechanism. Power was from a 4-carb 324ci Olds appearing rather stock except for twin-coils. The Crosley competed at the NHRA Nationals in Kansas City in 1956.
